BERKELEY (CBS / AP) — Police are investigating an altercation in the California locker room that sent freshman running back Fabiano Hale to the hospital.

University police Lt. Marc DeCoulode said the incident occurred Friday afternoon. He declined to release the identity of the second player involved or any further details, citing the pending investigation.

The school released a statement Tuesday saying a player was taken to an urgent care facility on campus before being transferred to the hospital. A spokeswoman for Alta Bates Summit Medical Center said Hale was released on Saturday morning after receiving treatment for unspecified injuries.

Hale, a walk-on from Santa Cruz, has yet to play this season. He told the Santa Cruz Sentinel he suffered a concussion and had stitches around one of his ears.

“I have a headache still,” Hale told the newspaper.

Cal coach Sonny Dykes declined to comment when asked about the incident at his weekly news conference Tuesday. The Golden Bears host Southern California on Saturday.

The incident is the latest in a miserable debut season for Dykes.

The Bears are 1-8 this year. Cal’s only victory came against Portland State, which plays in the lower-tier Football Championship Subdivision.
